Note: this page provides an introduction to the peer review process as it exists in wiki publishing. For a more general account of peer review, see peer review (general).

There are three stages in wiki publishing; preliminary drafts, formal peer review, and the "end stage" which is equivalent to traditional publishing of a peer reviewed article and what can happen after publishing (correction, retraction, citation).

Peer review template[]

The first author of an article can designate an article as being available for the formal peer review process by appending the {{Peer Review}} template to the article. If a {{Preliminary draft}} template was previously use in an article, it should be removed when {{Peer Review}} is added. This is what the {{Peer Review}} template looks like:

The peer review process[]

  1. Formal reviews of wiki articles are themselves wiki articles. See the instructions at the Reviewer Guidelines page.
  2. Formal reviews should be on their own wiki page and linked in both directions to the article that is reviewed.
  3. Formal reviews must include the {{Peer Review Article}} template.
  4. Peer review articles should use a Peer review article outline. For details see the Reviewer Guidelines page.
